Our Mission

To establish programs where children with special needs work alongside their typically developing peers to enhance social skills, mold leadership qualities and boost the self-esteem of children; particularly children with High Functioning Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). We nurture the self-esteem of our children by stimulating and developing their interests in entrepreneurship and STEAM.


We provide social skills training during high interest activities to help children attain socially appropriate skills that will lead to meaningful relationships. Children organically learn and build confidence through play, projects and teamwork.


Students are exposed to leadership skills, character development and opportunities to become more sensitive toward others.


Piggybacks on the STEAM concept, however, it incorporates “esteem building, social skills and entrepreneurship” into the equation. By using “high interest” activities in a creative, fun way. Students will become engaged in the learning process and possibly discover their “passion”.


Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I will learn.

- Benjamin Franklin -


It is our belief that every child has the capacity to excel and feel good about themselves once they discover their passion. It Takes a Village to Educate a Child was established to address this strong belief. We provide opportunities for children to find and develop their interests and passion.


Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you will help them become what they are capable of becoming.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe -
